Nashville's Diarrhea Planet and Daddy Issues at Brooklyn Bowl

DSC01096When my friend Sean told me he wanted to check out Nashville outfit Diarrhea Planet at Brooklyn Bowl last night, I had my suspicions. Expecting another run-of-the-mill hardcore band, I was instead surprised by a tight 90 minute set of straight-ahead rock, fueled by a wall of guitars - five of them, to be exact. The crowd was completely caught up in the popcorn vibe, stage diving their way to indie bliss. Not a bad way to kick off a holiday weekend. All-girl threesome Daddy Issues opened with their own thrashing, high energy set.
